Notes: The 2007 Cobalt inherited most of the problems from the 2005 and 2006 model years, but toned them down (a bit). Sure, the power steering still fails and the car has a chance of going up in flames due to a cracked fuel tank, but it’s not as prevalent as the older models. At least not yet.

In 2012, the Cobalt was recalled for gas tank fires but only for owners in certain states.

Then in 2014, the 2007 Cobalt was part of a massive GM recall due to a defective ignition switch that could cause the airbags to not deploy during an accident. The problem led to 13 deaths, government investigations and multiple class-action lawsuits.

2007 Chevrolet Cobalt Owner Comments

problem #1

Cobalt LS 2.2L

I have had my vehicle out to the dealership 6 times now to have these 2 leaks fixed & the dealership are unable to find any leak & therefore cannot fix it, though water continues to cover my passenger side & driver's side floor every time we have rain or snow??? In Canada there are not even any lemon laws to protect consumers against a lemon vehicle such as this, so if this is not fixed, my vehicle will have the floors rusted out of it before it's even paid off!
